The Jewish Community Center of the Lehigh Valley opened its doors to members of the community for a COVID-19 vaccination clinic on March 30. Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) hosted the clinic in the Kline Auditorium for JCC members who were eligible at the time.
“We thank LVHN for offering this opportunity to the JCC, and are hopeful that we will be able to schedule additional clinics in future weeks and open registration even more broadly to the community,” JCC staff said in a statement sent to members at the time. As of April 19, eligibility has been opened to everyone age 16 and over.
LVHN worked with JCC staff to vaccinate over 175 people in one day.
A second clinic is planned for Friday, May 7, from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. Moderna vaccines, which are only available to individuals 18 years or older, will be given, with the second dose clinic planned for Friday, June 4.
